Tributes Pour In Following The Death Of Rugby Legend Jonah Lomu

Jonah Lomu, frequently referred to a rugby's first superstar, has passed away in Auckland aged just 40.

The former All Black had been battling a kidney disorder since 1995. He was disagnosed with nephrotic syndrome and had a transplant in 2004, though his body rejected the organ seven years later.

As a player, he came to prominence during the 1995 World Cup, demolishing defences throughout the tournament. He would win 63 caps for the All Blacks.

Players and others involved with rugby have paid tribute following his sad passing.
